Beginners’ French II

A continuation of the A1 level work begun in FREN 101 and its journey into the French language and around the Francophone world. With an approach that is communicative and collaborative, and inductive and interactive, the course develops understanding and the mobilization of knowledge as savoir-faire.

FREN 102 involves three hours per week of classroom work. At the end of the course, students will be able to understand simple communication and to communicate simply about familiar and frequently-encountered topics.

Classes are mostly conducted in French, with some English as needed for explanation.

Language of instruction: English

Recommended prerequisite: FREN 101
